Using Integration Platforms to Automate and Integrate  

What do you think is the single biggest limitation to innovation and digital transformation? It is legacy systems that drain resources and limit growth. But this does not need to be the dialogue that defines these systems moving forward. It does not have to limit growth or cost more than it should, not when Hybrid Integration Platforms offer immense scalability and potential to modernize legacy applications. Hybrid Integration Platforms are the next step in evolution from iPaaS, offering complex data processing with simplified usage.

The value of platforms that offer beyond iPaaS capabilities is that they allow your business to dynamically evolve and adapt to industry changes and customer demands. Here are four reasons why moving beyond iPaaS is the way to go for organizations that want to modernize, adapt and transform.  

01: Seamlessly blend in to your environment

You want your code to seamlessly blend into your environment, not tangle your systems up in complexity. Custom coded integration, also known as point-to-point integration, can often limit change and usually leads to complex spaghetti code that is challenging to untangle and unpack. It also imposes unexpected limitations on delivery and development as one change in one area can have a significant knock-on impact further down the line.

However, with Hybrid Integration Platforms, you can operationalize your data for other systems to use – something that makes a lot of sense in the current climate – while moving rapidly towards digital transformation. You can ensure that your mission critical applications are seamlessly managed and integrated so they can deliver next generation services, while adopting a fast and cost-effective path to application modernization.  

02: Save on money, not opportunity

Businesses are moving away from investing in homegrown infrastructure such as on-premises data centers. Instead, they are transitioning towards using cloud-based platforms, which provide cost reduction and efficiency benefits. This removes the costly expense in favor of a more manageable and scalable operating expense. Hybrid Integration Platforms allow businesses to automate and modernize on demand, without holding your IT budget to ransom.

Leveraging a Hybrid Integration Platform to solve your integration, automation, and system modernization needs is not only an affordable choice, it’s an intelligent one. There is so much variety when it comes to using a platform that goes beyond iPaaS functionality. These hybrid solutions offer an array of capabilities that open the door to countless opportunities.

04: It’s an inclusive integration experience  

Most iPaaS platforms offer either ETL or integration capabilities, however, Hybrid Integration Platforms go a step beyond iPaaS by giving you the ability to manage all data access, movement and storage issues.
